  1. The Yuktidīpikā on the Origin of the Vedas.Ołena Łucyszyna - 2020 - International Journal of Hindu Studies 24 (2):239-256.
    In this article, I reconstruct the view of the Yuktidīpikā, the most detailed and profound commentary of classical Sāṃkhya, on the origin of the Vedas. A close reading of the text reveals that its unknown author wavered between at least two different views on this issue. The first view is that the authorless but noneternal Vedas evolve from prakṛti at the beginning of a new cycle of existence of the world and merge into prakṛti during a cosmic dissolution. The Yuktidīpikā (...)

  • How Can the Word “Cow” Exclude Non-Cows? Description of Meaning in Dignāga’s Theory of Apoha.Kiyotaka Yoshimizu - 2017 - Journal of Indian Philosophy 45 (5):973-1012.
    Dignāga’s theory of semantics called the “theory of apoha ” has been criticized by those who state that it may lead to a circular argument wherein “exclusion of others” is understood as mere double negation. Dignāga, however, does not intend mere double negation by anyāpoha. In his view, the word “cow” for instance, excludes those that do not have the set of features such as a dewlap, horns, and so on, by applying the semantic method called componential analysis. The present (...)
